Abstract:  Compounding pharmacists often find themselves on the cutting edge of medical treatment. Prescribers and patients look to compounders for ideas on novel treatments or for more information on standard treatments. Even with the vast supply of information available on the Internet, finding reliable data from trustworthy websites has become increasingly difficult. All too often, an Internet search on a specific medical topic may turn up no dependable material. For complete, science-based information about medical topics, the National Library of Medicine’s database of medical literature, MEDLINE, is an essential tool for the compounding pharmacist.
